This photograph was taken during the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It shows a lonely city during the late afternoon. Under normal circumstances the streets would be filled with life, people would be on the streets doing their shopping. Today it is only quiet, quiet and lonely and only a few people get lost in the city.
I took this long exposure photo using 17mm wide lens and natural grey filter that allows exposure to be extended by the factor of a thousand (DolDer X-Pro Series Slim Neutral Density Filter ND 1000). Exposure settings was 27 minutes. I was standing in the shallow water using tripod and waiting for a photo for over 27 minutes (noise reduction time included).
During the global Covid-19 pandemic, we often feel lonely and abandoned because of the ban on contact. At some point we read all the books at home, watched every film. We know every tree in the forest, we have ordered everything necessary and unnecessary on the Internet and then we have to find out that the earth keeps turning despite all the loneliness. That we have to be grateful if it hasn't hit us or our friends and family and we go out with a smile and the knowledge that tomorrow will be a good day.
